IntroductionI would like to thank CoolIT for the review sample.
The New Standard for Cooling Computers
For years, CoolIT has been working with leaders in the computer industry to research, design, and provide an affordable new cooling product that provides a comprehensive solution for end users while exceeding high OEM standards. This carefully designed and patented technology unleashes the full potential of a PC, providing superior cooling performance while reducing system level noise and improving reliability of vital components. This small, but potent, pre-assembled product can be easily installed inside any standard chassis.
Aside from the current product offering, there are several additional products poised for release in the coming months to service the demanding cooling requirements of high performance video cards, multi-processor computers, and servers.
Leveraging the technology
The same core technology being utilized in CoolIT's computer cooling products is being applied to enable other useful products that have novel appeal. The first of which is the CoolIT USB Beverage Chiller which will keep your beverage cold to the last drop running silently off your USB interface. We felt it only appropriate to help keep your beverage cold while you're enjoying your new CoolIT liquid chilled enhanced PC. CoolIT's expertise in the field of thermoelectric cooler utilization will pave the way for many other innovative products that will not only appeal to the most tech savvy users but to the broader market arena as well.
Today we'll take a look at a different type of system cooling. It is a water cooler, however, it's not your everyday water cooler. You may ask, how could it be different? Let's just say it gets really hot to get really cold. A bit of a oxymoron some may say, but not when you're talking about Thermo-Electric Coolers (TEC), or peltiers as some call them. CoolIT Systems has come up with a new series of coolers which are based upon TECs. They still use the basic principles of a regular water system, but the secret is in how they cool the hot water coming back from the CPU water block.
Before we get into the workings of this system too much, let's take a look at some of it's features and its specifications.

- Sealed, closed loop system is maintenance-free
- Simple bolt-in installation for any standard case
- Designed and manufactured to be incredibly robust and durable
